In this 10 piece build, we get a weapons rack. As part of the build, we get a pair of binoculars, two blasters, and a green lightsaber. Hmm, green lightsaber. Wonder who that’s for?
If you’re been wanting to get your hands on the LEGO Star Wars Imperial Shuttle (10212), then now is the time. Amazon.com is having it on sale for $181.99. That is 30% off the MSRP!! It is no doubt a fantastic deal especially for the amount of pieces you get for the set. It contains 2503 pieces which comes out to $0.07/piece. Amazing!! Not sure why the price fluctuates so much with this one. A couple of days ago, it was at $204.99, and now it’s dropped another $23. Why not treat yourself and your family to this great set. Plus take advantage of the FREE Super Saver Shipping and you might even get it before Christmas arrives. If you’re an Amazon Prime member, you can get it in 2 days. Jump on this deal before the price changes again!!
*EDIT 12/17/11* – The price for the set now has risen to $189.99. It’s still a $70 savings of the retail price.
*EDIT 12/19/11* – Looks like the price is back up to $218.99 now. Still a ok deal but better to wait and see if Amazon does another sale in the future.
*EDIT 12/21/11* – Well the price is down to $209.00 as of today. As you can see, the pricing on this set is very unstable.
For today, we get another minifig and not just any minifig. The Clone Pilot makes an appearance in the LEGO Star Wars 2011 Advent Calendar. It has 6 pieces and the head is all black. Nothing to complain about here. Just another minifig to add to your army of troopers.
For Day 15, we have another micro scale ship to build. It is the Republic Attack Gunship. Featured in Episode 2: The Clone Wars, it is a pretty accurate ship like many of the other ships in the Advent Calendar. The red and green pieces make the ship pop out more than if it contained only white pieces. The build contains 14 pieces with 3 extras.
This is one of those days where LEGO didn’t know what else to put in the Star Wars Advent Calendar. As with the R2-Q5 from Day 13, the Mouse Droid was included with the Death Star (10188) and the Imperial Star Destroyer (6211). It is made of 9 pieces and you really don’t need instructions to build it. A filler build that should’ve been left out I think.
Originally included with the more expensive LEGO Star Wars sets such as the Death Star (10188) and the Imperial Star Destroyer (6211), the R2-Q5 droid minifig is now included in the 2011 Star Wars Advent Calendar. The coloring on this bad boy is awesome with the gold markings contrasting the black. I would definitely pick up another one of these droids separately to add to my collection.
